Savoring My Semi-Productive Summer

 

My Summer ends today. Enrollment starts tomorrow and the next thing I know, classes and quizzes and homework will start rolling in like an avalanche. Everyone deserves a fairy-tale-like happy ending right?

Today, my highschool classmate Maureen treated each of us a whole plate of pizza before she goes back to CMU. Never been served with an assortment, eh? I had these slices from bartering with ’em. I thought we looked ridiculous in the pizzeria considering we’re a loud bunch of cool kids. Maybe we looked like arguing over our own slices, but we weren’t really. We’re just naturally noisy, or should I say, THEY are naturally noisy :3

We then headed to Wat Ever KTV Bar, which I didn’t take much participation because I went home earlier, afraid that my mom might turn austere about my outdoor rendezvous with my friends if I come home late. We would have been done earlier if only people showed up on the exact time we were supposed to meet – 1 pm. But Filipino time it is and they showed up 2 hours late. Seriously, I don’t blame anyone because I love my friends as hard as I’d stamp on a cockroach. 

I had a great summer although I wasn’t able to do all things on the list like learn how to bake, master the morse code, read 15 books (I only managed 11 cause I was busy living my actual life). I had a memorable summer of service working with my orgmates in KKP for the May 2013 National Elections, nurturing my experience and social relationship despite taking most of my days in April and the half month of May. I can’t forget working 3 sleepless days for some posters for the Candidate’s Forum that were rejected which I was too lazy to write about. T.T  Other events include Casey’s birthday, Aquatro Reunion/Outing, visits to my dentist, and.. well, yeah, that’s it. I can’t remember the rest of the insignificant happenings. I spent the rest of my summer watching movies and anime. Okay, it’s getting boring so give me the honor to end with a period.

 

For a Mother to Keep

          Happy Mother’s Day to every mom! Well, I wouldn’t also forget to greet my grandmother. So here I am again, making a card for my mom. I’ve been doing this since childhood and the only times I didn’t was when we bought a cake instead. We’ve been flooded from last year’s typhoon Sendong and all the cards my mom kept that we, her children, have made,  are gone. So I decided I’d make another one this year.

           It’s the front cover. . . pretty plain and simple. I’ve been out of ideas because I haven’t prepared for this day. So this is what I’ve managed. With a little tutorial from youtube, I made those flowers. Just fold and flip!

         Inside my card, I made a poem. If appearance can’t guarantee the proof of my efforts, then I guess being lyrical can make up for it. Added some doodles, not to forget a picture of a panda and then done! I apologize for the poor penmanship. 🙂

          If you can’t manage to read from the photo, I’ll quote it.

Flowers may grow and wither

But words can live until forever

So three things I have to say

To you this Mother’s Day

First, I want to THANK YOU

For the love and care you give that is true

For staying strong for the family

While heavy burdens you have to carry

Second, as I must, I DO APOLOGIZE

For the mistakes I have come to realize

These things, I know, must have hurt you

But to inflict pain I didn’t intend to

Finally, I’ll say the words that greatly signify

‘Cause despite the times that I defy

In spite of the instances that I disappoint you

My actions may show contrast, I DO LOVE YOU.

Moms and Babies (nutripoem)

Three moms there are in this story
Each has their own baby of responsibility
They raise their sons differently
To how they think it should be done properly

Mother one is strict and thrifty
Some say, on money, she’s just being witty
She spends each coin and bill carefully
Never knowing her son would later turn sickly

Mother two is too gentle and kind
“Food is to be indulged,” that’s on her mind
So her son believes she is right
Now all his shirts and pants are tight

Mother three is wise and good
She takes a great deal when it comes to food
Proper nutrition and love she gives
A healthy boy is now how he lives

Three mothers, how different they may be
A parent, that’s still what we see
But if among them I have to choose
To have mother three I’d never refuse

~This was the poem I wrote for our nutrition month in 4th year high school. I didn’t know what I was really thinking that time so I wrote what I felt like writing. This was kept hidden in the notes of my Facebook account so I’d have my own copy and avoid being laughed at for it doesn’t make so much sense. I mean, it doesn’t really contain a bright idea.

Gratitude

 

If only a thought from the mind

Is a plain but qualified basis

If only words from the mouth

Are enough to express this

 

If only statements written in ink

Equal to our feelings of bliss

If only gestures and handshakes

Are clear signs of  emphasis

 

But these aren’t sufficient proofs

To convey what it really is

So we give you our genuine smiles

As gratitude for your aegis
